The calumny of the AFL's priority pick policy

Recommended Posts

Whatever.

Q) What do Fyfe, T Kelly, Dangerfield, P Cripps, Bontempelli, Grundy, Gawn, Neale and Dusty Martin have in common?

A) Blokes that are dominating 2019 and are at the absolute top of their game, and none of them were top 2 picks.

The eventual best player of this draft won’t be picks 1 or 2.

Ok, but if you wanted to get King from GC, pick 2 would be the best ammo to use as they were desperate for it.

They won't be desperate for pick 3.

The AFL knew that and awarded the first top PP in how long, after saying they were only for the most extreme cases. GC have several young stars to come through. 

Unless there is a backroom deal to give us something, like funding for our new centre, we have been shafted again by the ruling body of the competition, I mean business.

BOTH Wagner boys for pick 2? Or King?

Not remotely a fair deal, but they need players that want to be there. Help the talented kids they already have enjoy Qld. It’s not exactly a bad spot to be an overpaid footballer.

No offence to the Wagners (and I'm sure they'd agree) but they could be three times the players that they are now and this still not be a fair deal for Gold Coast.

Same deal.

Are you kidding? Microwaves are useful.

Josh Schache was the clear number 2 pick in 2015 who’s developed into a 1 goal a game key forward that spends time in the Footscray magoos each year.

Can Rowell and Anderson transfer their under 18’s dominance from U 18’s to AFL?

Great point, 

Petracca pick 2 : no

Kelly pick 2 : yes

There’s no guarantees.

Yes it's a bit unfair but I can't believe it's gotten to the point we're upset we're getting pick 3 instead of pick 2. Those days should be well and truly behind us.

The days of relying for help from the AFL (ie. getting pick 3 as compo for losing Frawley) should be well and truly behind us.

I would. How could that happen?

Who knows. I'm an ideas man.

How about our pick 3 goes to  saints who trade it for king, giving gc picks 1,2 and 3.

We get saints pick 6 and maybe their next  pick (pick 23?) And next year's first pick.

Gc promise not to take the player we want at pick 6 and we hope blues ir swans dont grab him (Maybe the AFL 'suggests' they dont - on the down low od course)..

Makes it hard for Saints to get Hill but they would have a pair of kings. We could package up pick 20 pic 23 and next year's Saints 1st rounder for Hill. That was fun. Ezy done.

Failing all of that of course we could simply trade our pick 3 for King and gc' next first rounder  (the lion's pick) giving us a first round pick and a gun forward.  And we xould then look to trade weideman to magpies for Elliot

We should Lobby to receive the suns pick 17 as part of being pushed back by them receiving pick 2.

Who cares if we end up with Pick 2 or 3?

At the start of the year, we would have all been expecting a pick in the range of 16-18. Instead, the club got ahead of itself, players turn up unfit and well, the rest is history.

Anybody who thinks we have been screwed by the AFL because GC get pick 2 need to take a good hard look at themselves imo, If this club actually stood for something, we wouldn't even be discussing the possibility of getting an early 1st round pick!

Lol. 

Explain to me how the AFL [censored] us over? 

Let me know the last time we turned a top draft pick into a genuine star. 

 When we were languishing at the bottom of the ladder the AFL decided to give all the top picks to GWS and the Suns. Now they look like they’ll do it again!

I have no idea what you said before that bolded part Bin but if it resulted in that outcome i'd be ecstatic!

Send it to Mahoney.

Gillon McLachlan really is a blight on the game. He moves the goal posts to suit his agenda, talks about wanting players to stay at certain teams (Coniglio) and comes up with rules on the fly.

I don't care if it is pick 2 or 3, as the end result is these players will eventually leave the GC and come back to Melbourne. The only way the AFL will be able to keep players up there is if they give the Suns double the salary cap of the other clubs. It's just so frustrating that this is another example in a long line of AFL bias and a completely inept administration.

Yeh well had we sorted our [censored] out as a club, we wouldn't have had to suffer the consequences would we.

Here is a thought.. why don't they get their priority pick ahead of the 8 clubs that made finals, so not to impact those trying to move up the biased ladder... I don't know just a bit of logic!

Word. 

It's genuinely embarrassing and cringe worthy that posters are kicking up a stink.

Well, that settles it, I'm now officially on the 'trade down and trade up' campaign.

Ideal result would be something like picks 8 and 12 instead of 3 and 21.

I wonder if Carlton might be interested in getting pick 3 just to annoy the Crows?

My mail is really strong that the Suns will not trade any of Pick 1 & 2 and that both Rowell and Anderson want to be drafted together, great mates and more than happy to go to the Suns. The AFL see this as the Brisbane model and a way of genuinely keeping them together at the Suns.

So its pick 3 and we take the best skilled player available the one who is the best kick, probably Young from all reports. The next thing to look at is to see how we can get another top 10 pick.  And i genuinely think this will revolve around Brayshaw. he is currently our most expendable top end talent worthy of trade bait. I believe in the coming days we will hear this to be true and that Brayshaw will very much be  on the table to the likes of Freo, and also St Kilda.

I agree, if we hadn't kept get screwed by the Maggots and the AFL making up new rules to implement in every game just for Max and Ollie we would be well entrenched into the Top Four and i would still complain about this rat infested competition.........

So lets have a look at it. Last year we needed outside run and skills, we took an inside mid with our first selection. 

So this year it has to be the best skilled player available at pick 3. From what i read, Its Young. Can we trust our recruiting team to make the right decision because after last years drafting i am seriously skeptical.

    QUEENS BIRTHDAY BLOCKBUSTER by Bananabender

    A little known fact for Victorians is that Queenslanders don’t celebrate the Queen's Birthday in June but rather in October. The scheduled date on this year’s calendar is 5 October, 2020. However, I have a suggestion for Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and that is to move the date forward a month and a half to this Saturday so that the coming clash of traditional rivals, Melbourne and Collingwood, continues a longstanding tradition of our game — the Queen’s Birthday Blockbuster.

    THE TORRENS THUMPING 2.0 by George on the Outer

    Once again the banks of Adelaide’s Torrens River witnessed the Melbourne Football Club handing out another on-field thumping to its opponent. This time the hapless victim was North Melbourne and given it was only the club’s second win against them since 2007, it was a very satisfying outcome. The Demons got off to a slow start once again, looking listless from their four day break, a situation that wasn’t helped by Sam Weideman and Christian Petracca missing easy set shots. At the first bre

    THE 2020 EQUATION by Whispering Jack

    The 2020 equation is simple for the Melbourne Football Club – it must keep winning and it must take some big scalps during the second half of the season without dropping games against the lesser lights. The Demons have gone down this season to the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th teams on the ladder including twice by less than a goal in games that could easily have gone the other way. Against that, they have beaten 11th, 13th, 14th and 18th and though they thumped the Crows during the week, the

    THE TORRENS THUMPING by George on the Outer

    THE TORRENS THUMPING - LEAVING THE DEMONS BEHIND That headline might lead a reader to think that Melbourne had lost badly in Adelaide but no!  It was actually the MFC which left it’s demons from the previous week behind as it applied the blowtorch to the Crows in the final quarter of their match at the Adelaide Oval and went on their merry way to record a 51 point win before their biggest crowd of the year (even if they were mainly hostile). Much had been made in the media about t

    STATE OF DEESASTER by the Oracle

    Melbourne’s circus caravan rolls into Adelaide on Wednesday night, an event that will put shivers up the spine of every Crows’ supporter as they look directly into the face of disaster. The flakey Demons left their home town a month ago and proceeded to rough up the Gold Coast Suns and Hawthorn in Sydney before moving on to the sunny Queensland where they missed by a bee’s diaphragm against the more or less local second-on-ladder Brisbane Lions. Then, they had to butter up against the top t

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    In a dismal display against Port Adelaide, Melbourne showed it had learnt nothing from their previous week’s loss to Brisbane. Port, in contrast, after losing to St.Kilda, addressed their failings, and as a result made the Demons look like a second-rate side.  Melbourne failed to score a goal in the first quarter, and the first time it seriously troubled the goal umpire was saved until a minute before half-time.  Did it get any better?  No with their meagre three goals for the sec

    DESPERATION OF THE MOMENT by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s recent win against Hawthorn highlighted how important Max Gawn’s ruck domination is for the team. A week later however, that domination continued but its effect was totally blunted by the Brisbane Lions midfield and, as a consequence, what could have been an easy win over a leading AFL contender turned into a disappointing but close loss and a sense of desperation now looms over the club as the halfway mark of the season approaches. This week’s opponent in Port Adelaide also und

    THE FOUR POINT FAIL by George on the Outer

    Melbourne went down by 4 points in a thrilling finish against Brisbane, but they failed by more than the 4 points.     They also failed to score the 4 points necessary to keep them in the race for the finals, and now find themselves sitting 6 points outside the top 8, but effectively 2 games outside (even though they have a game in hand).   The Demons had more than enough opportunities to win.  Six very easy shots on goal failed to bother the goal umpire with a major and ultimate

    The travelling COVID circus moves north of the border yet again and, unless at some time in the near future, Papua New Guinea opens its borders, this could be the last time this phenomenon happens. And as fortune would dictate, the resurgent Demons are walking directly into the sights of the locals from the bright lights of Brizvegas to Carrara - the scene of some long-forgotten (and deservedly so) battles with one of the Lions’ former incarnations, namely, the Brisbane Bears.

    One of the Hawthorn Football Club’s valued sponsors is Azep® Nasal Spray and given the thrashing handed out to the Hawks in today’s game, it would appear that they need a huge supply of the sponsor’s product because they are simply on the nose. This condition was caused by the sheer dominance of the Demons, led magnificently by skipper Max Gawn with 27 hitouts and 22 disposals including two clearances. Around him in the middle were Christian Petracca with 29 touches, Clayton Oliver (also on

    THE PREMIER LEAGUE by Whispering Jack

    So the new man under the pump is Clarko, which demonstrates how sad but predictable the football media is these days. In an age where each AFL team’s form can be topsy turvy and unpredictability is the order of the day, the coach of a team that has played five out of the top six teams from the previous season and sits with a 3/3 win loss record is this week’s whipping boy.   This comes admittedly on the back of a bad fortnight from the Hawks who in recent years have exhibited an enormous

    SUNSMART by George on the Outer

    If you don’t want to get sunburnt, you follow the Sunsmart rules.  Melbourne took the advice and with their season on the line, avoided getting burnt by the Gold Coast Suns, with a gripping 17 point win. It was a match that could have gone either way, with the sides within a kick of each other for all but the final minutes of the final quarter. Melbourne had stretched the lead earlier in the game to 18 points, but that quickly evaporated to a neck and neck race to the finish.  Finally,
